Throughout the 1920s, America's public figures considered a prosperous stock market to be a sign of a prosperous nation. While unemployment slowly rose and production dropped, leaders assured everyone that they should have faith in the economy. Then came the Great Crash on Wall Street. The loss of faith in public institutions devastated Americans ideologically just as it devastated the national economy - the US would never be the same again. This brief introduction paints the picture of life in America on the precipice of the Great Depression.

The Great crash

Fair to good short explaination of why the banks crashed and how people got to the point of no return.Mason Philippe-Auguste was an ok narrator.I felt as if I was listening to a speech by a High School student.There were times the sound sounded as if she were talking from inside a can.I was given this book by the narrator,author or publisher free for an honest review.

All About THE Crash

First, this book was gifted to me for the holidays by in60Learning so no review was requested but I feel like I should due to their kindness. Second, this book is all about the stock market crash of 1929. It tells of all the things that occurred to cause the crash. It also touches on the Great Depression and the part the Crash played. If you are looking for information on the stock market crash then this is a good place to start. The narration was good although the narrator seemed to be bored with the material she was reading. Overall, an interesting listen.
